Veteran CIA analyst Ray McGovern says intelligence against Syria’s Assad has been fabricated by the spy community to mislead President Obama to act. Some would argue that Barrack Obama hardly needs help to make awful decisions,
particularly when it comes to foreign policy on any topic, but McGovern and other veteran intelligence professionals indicate the president is being misguided.
The media is drumbeating for the war just as before Iraq. And they don’t want to hear that the evidence is very very flimsy. They don’t want to hear that people within the CIA – senior people, with great access to this information – assure us, the veterans, that there’s no conclusive evidence that Assad ordered those chemical incidents on August 21. They don’t want to hear that. They want to process beyond that and just deal with what we must do. Now, you don’t assume those things – you need proof of them.
Do you believe an organization like the CIA would dare deceive the public and manipulate the president?
